Default Who built Shop Notes Router Lift?

Four years ago this lift was posted http://www.routerforums.com/jigs-fix...ne-w-pics.html The poster has not been active for three years. I have a Bosch RA1180 RT with a pc690 and am thinking of building this lift Has anyone else built the lift? has it been durable? Any other comments appreciated

Bill, I haven't built it... but if you send Rob a private message he should get notification of it if his email is still the same.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Unless you just "" want "" to build one there are several router manufactures that have through the top height adjustment. Mine is a Portal Cable 690 and I like it very well.

The one your looking to build might have problems sticking because of wood to wood friction. I am not sure about that, I am just saying that because of looking at the picture.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Hawkeye I have a craftsman router with above table in my tablesaw wing, I have two triton router in RT's. I also have a pc690 in a bosch bench top that would be nice to convert. The reason for my post was to inquire about the possibilities you raise

I'm in the middle of building my own design, using some aspects of that design. I'm building vs buying because I can build this from scrap first free vs $300 for decent purchase. I'm saving for a track saw.

This is still an interesting topic, if you do build one then make sure you do a photographic log of the build, I ever build one then I would also do that. N

I like the design of the guide rails and will probably stick to it thinking about lining the rails with UMHW self-adhesive tape its a roundtoit so don't hold your breath on pics but will probably finish it before Rainman insulates his shop

Ok ,I never insulate
